Steph Curry celebrates 28th birthday with 27 points in win over Pelicans
What do you get for the MVP who has everything? An easy win and a Warriors-themed cake.
Steph Curry already had his birthday party over the weekend and a serenade from daughter Riley, but Monday night the Golden State Warriors home crowd got to celebrate with their star on his 28th birthday.
And he treated the fans with an efficient performance, scoring 27 points on 10-of-16 shooting (hitting four of nine 3-pointers, too) in a 125-107 win over the New Orleans Pelicans for the Warriors' 49th straight home victory. Curry played just 31 minutes.
There were signs in the crowd and the usual MVP chants, not to mention his fifth Western Conference Player of the Week award of the season before the game.
And afterward? That cake.
